Update on the National Offshore Petroleum Information Management System (NOPIMS)

11 November 2014

Under the NOPDCR banner, NOPTA, Geoscience Australia and GSWA have been cooperating on the development of an Australia-wide data discovery and delivery system for offshore wells and survey activities. Known as the NOPIMS, the system is based upon an enhanced version of WA's WAPIMS technology.

Although data coverage and completeness will be initially limited to reports and data for open-file activities post 1 January 2012, the NOPIMS will be progressively populated over time with data for open-file activities prior to this date.

Geoscience Australia is currently working through the extensive build and testing phases of the NOPIMS. As Geoscience Australia and the service provider work through this process, it is necessary to restrict access to the full contents of the system.

The NOPIMS is planned for release prior to the APPEA conference in May 2015.
